Mozilla Release Security Update to Fix Domain Name Phishing

The Mozilla Foundation this week released new versions of its Thunderbird mail client and its namesake Mozilla browser suite that both plug security holes.

Mozilla 1.7.6 was patched against the same IDN (International Domain Names) spoofing flaw that was corrected in Firefox 1.0.1, which was released a month ago.



After several days of confusion about the future of its open-source browser suite, the Mozilla Foundation called it quits, and announced that it would stop development of its namesake.

All development efforts will instead be focused on Firefox, the foundation's stand-alone browser, and Thunderbird, its e-mail client. Supporters of the Mozilla browser suite, however, aren't ready to throw in the towel, and it appears likely that it will live on under a new name and under the aegis of an independent developer community.
